In which I reveal the poster for the End of Summer Nerdfighter Gathering

Poster

Tadaa! The poster I designed and illustrated for the End of Summer Gathering this August. What is this gathering you say? It’s a large Nerdfighter gathering that happens in summer in Utrecht, we’ve held it twice before and this will be the third one. The group of people showing up is so large that we can’t just walk around the city centre and hang out in a public park anymore, so for this edition my friend Roland who organizes the thing reserved a venue. Of course venues cost money, so people will have to buy tickets. To make it extra appealing I’ve designed this poster, so if you pay more you get this snazzy thing to remember it by and to put on your wall. We plan on making it a fun event with lots of interesting things to do (we’re thinking about maybe doing a small scavenger hunt for those who want to participate, similar to the one in Arnhem earlier this year) and people can bring games and play them and make music (there is bound to be someone with a ukelele).

I think you need to be a member of the Dutch and Belgium Facebook group (see here) to be able to see/join the event page, but check it out if you are curious!

I’ve used illustrator for the illustrations and indesign to put everything together. I don’t use illustrator as often as I would like, and I had some frustrating moments in which I had to get used to how the pen tool is slightly different in it than it is in photoshop (where I use it a lot for cut outs), but I am very happy with what I’ve been able to do. I hope you like the poster as much as I do. 🙂

In which you get to see an illustration and a link to the newest issue of The Anglerfish

Jennifer

My illustration of Jennifer Lawrence for the newest issue of The Anglerfish! It is the illustration for an article called Jennifer Lawrence Stands Up For You, about body image and misrepresentation in the media. Jennifer Lawrence speaks up about these things, loving her body and loving food. So I gave her a pizza halo. 🙂 She likes pizza, nerdfighters like pizza, I like pizza, it seemed logical to me!
Go check out the issue! It’s full of Hunger Games awesomeness and other things.

Do you like this illustration? Let me know in the comments! I’m also thinking of using this type of headlines for my posts more often, like the chapter descriptions in old adventure books. “In which our hero discovers an evil plot and tries to warn the Countess” So let me know what you think of that too.

More photos of the Museum Gathering

The digital photos I took in and around the Rijksmuseum during our Nerdfighter Museum Gathering! I’ve finally switched to shooting raw. I know, I am so late to this party. I tried shooting raw years ago, but the version of photoshop I had then couldn’t recognize the files from my camera, and the software that came with the camera was excruciatingly slow on the computer I had then. So I kept shooting jpeg and built my workflow around that. Fastforward to now, when I suddenly realise that I’ve had my new computer with a much newer version of photoshop for a while now, so why not switch to shooting raw? I’m still adjusting my workflow, but I am enjoying the imense control I have over the files post shooting. 😀
